princess diaries 8 is so bad that i might have to give up my faith in the entire series.
to begin with, michael and mia broke up. which sucks, but was basically inevitable. what makes it betrayal is the WAY that they were broken up. the first major problem is that for the past few books, cabot has sort of drifted from the characterizations that made the first three installments such a guilty pleasure. now it's more of a pop-culture-driven, facile extrapolation of a ...more
(4 stars instead of 5 because Mia was really immature in this one)
You are so...oblivious!!!
Can't YOU SEE??
Going to the stupid Beauty and the Beast musical, with J.P., no less is NOT gonna make things better!! It is TOTALLY gonna make things worst than it already is!!!!
Here are some examples:
Lilly will actually believe that you are lying, BECAUSE!!! Because you went out with J.P. AGAIN.
Lilly will tell Michael about you going out with J.P.!! Need I say more?
You are actually doing what your Grandmere wants you to do!! Which is go ...more
Well, Princess on the Brink is much more about Mia and Michael's relationship than many of the past books have been. Michael reveals that he is going on a very long trip to Japan in orde ...more
Here’s the thing about this one. A lot of people hate it. And I get it, but I really think that this book in the long run made the series.
Yes, the breakup was painful. But it really was inevitable and I think in the long run it strengthened M&M. The thing is, when I first read this book I was ready for Michael and Mia to break up.
Yes, them breaking up was like a getting pushed into the fountain scene for me. Sad and sick but true.
I love the couple, ...more
Oh sweet Lord, give me courage.
True to its title, it brought me on the brink. On the brink of having my brain destroyed forever due to the extremely painful headache I got while reading this.
At this point my complaints are absolutely pointless so let me just get this out of my system before I hurl:
Michael gets a life-changing, career-making opportunity to go to Japan. Mia doesn't take it well and decides to give him the gift of her virginity *vomits* to make him stay. Michael accidentally reveal...more
Mia just drove me insane the entire time. I want to feel bad for her, but, in all honesty, most, if not all, of her problems could have been avoided if she would just stop overreacting to EVERY LITTLE THING. I just, I just can't deal with Mia right now. My face was like this for almost the entire time I spent reading Pr ...more
Well, they were all right. I can't help loving and hating this book. WARNING: DO NOT READ WHEN BUSY!!!!!! Not as enthralling as you might think, but still kind of hard to put down. Kind of.
For one thing, Mia was way too immature in this book. And stupid. And then I started hating Mi ...more
Mia is more annoying than ever. She is the most feather-brained, thoughtless, and idiotic heroine ever. If she could just take 5 minutes to breathe in and out and stop making a freaking dramatization out of every single thing that happened in her life, maybe she would attain her goal of self-realizatio ...more
It's the beginning of Mia's junior year, but so far, things are not going as planned. For starters, Mia may have managed to pass Algebra and Geometry, but now she has to deal with Pre-Calculus. And she's also totally lost in Chemistry, even though she now has two lab partners instead of just one. Lilly has also decided to nominate Mia for student body president. Again. And even though Mia has tried to explain that she doesn't want it, as we all know, once ...more
(Also liked Meg including her other works in it as a passing remark. It was funny)
Lilly is going out with J.P, who seems to have an interest in Mia. Grandmere is still crazy and Fat Louie is still fat.
Quite dramatic compared to the last ...more
Mia frustrated me to no end until her moment of clarity in the last few pages. I disliked Michael for a bit, but then he grew on me again. Lily gained a bit of sympathy from me, for once in the ...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
